Here is one for QI. What animal howls at the moon and travels alone. NOT A WOLF.

Two so called facts about wolves is they are alone and they howl at the moon.

Both untrue.

So all these people that say they are lone wolves are misguided.

Wolves are legendary because of their spine-tingling howl, which they use to communicate. A lone wolf howls to attract the attention of his pack, while communal howls may send territorial messages from one pack to another. Some howls are confrontational. Much like barking domestic dogs, wolves may simply begin howling because a nearby wolf has already begun.

Why do wolves howl at the moon?

Well they can't throw sticks at it can they?

Actually, the fact that wolves tend to travel in packs is the reason for the expression "lone wolf". It implies that you are different, that you stand on your own and go your own way.

This makes the "lone wolf" and iconoclast, even if only in his own mind.

It would be silly to describe yourself as a "lone tiger", since all tigers are "lone".
